July Nature Desktop Calendar: Market Flowers

Such a huge variety of flowers in buckets at the market! I visit many farmer’s markets through the summer now that every community seems to have one at least once a week, to purchase what my garden is not producing. All the farmers are local and are small family farms and I enjoy meeting the […]

July Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Garden Sketch With Mimi

Even though I used this painting as featured artwork and desktop calendar in July 2014, I’m chose to feature it again this year for a special anniversary. This July is ten years since we lost Lucy, since I saw Mimi in my garden on that very day, nearly in this very spot, very pregnant with […]

June Nature Desktop Calendar: A Bend in the Road

In early June, on a lovely sunny day just about noon, I was leaving a morning event and on errands traveling the back roads just for fun, knowing this narrow back road had some wonderful spots. Here is one of them, “A Bend in the Road”. We never know what’s around that bend in the […]

May Nature Desktop Calendar: Birth Root, Red Trillium

My May Nature Desktop Calendar is a few days late—because I couldn’t decide which wildflower to feature in the photo! May is all about wildflowers for me, each day a new flower blooming, everywhere you look, even the dandelions, I love them all. It’s so hard to think of only choosing one, but after four […]

April Featured Feline Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Their Faces to the Sun

Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. Often, big soft Mewsette settles somewhere and soon I see little Mimi tucked up against her, two girls enjoying some girl […]

April Nature Desktop Calendar: Pear Trees on Main Street

Spring has come round again, and Carnegie’s Main Street is once again awash in white blossoms—a little earlier than usual this year. A freeze damaged many of the blossoms and the display may not be as vibrant as usual, but I have a painting for that. In April, when the ornamental pears bloom, Main Street […]

March Featured Artwork and Desktop Calendar: Morning Shift Studio

March is a month of change so the choice of feline art for this month is all over the place. This is often the month I’ll choose a monochromatic image or nearly so or even black and white because all other months have color associations for me but March has many, I had a dozen […]

March Nature Desktop Calendar: “You’re My Best Frond”

“You’re My Best Frond” features two tiny fiddlehead ferns just emerged from the leaf litter along the Panhandle trail, caught at just the right angle. They’re rooted in the spot so they’re kind of stuck with each other. It’s a good thing they’re “such good fronds”! It still makes me laugh whenever I look at […]

February Feline Art and Desktop Calendar: “Darling Clementine”

To be perfectly honest, I featured this painting as a monthly desktop calendar in January 2013. I’ve been thinking a lot about Namir lately and the time when I painted this watercolor. I decided that if you saw and downloaded this desktop calendar four years ago and still remember it, you probably like it, and […]

This painting is entitled “Colorful”, 11″ x 15″, done in soft pastel on self-prepared board with marble dust and gesso. This work was one of my new paintings for the 2015 Wings & Wildlife Art Show at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh. “Colorful” is one of my favorite duck images on Chartiers Creek from my […]
